Rubbing along with robots tackles Abe’s double dilemma

File photo of humanoid robots working side by side with employees in the assembly line at a factory of Glory Ltd., a manufacturer of automatic change dispensers, in Kazo, north of TokyoBy Leika Kihara and Kaori Kaneko TOKYO (Reuters) – Factory worker Satomi Iwata has new co-workers, a troupe of humanoid automata that are helping to address two of Japan's most pressing concerns – a shortage of labor and a need for growth. The 19 robots, which cost her employer Glory Ltd about 7.4 million yen ($60,000) each, have eye-like sensors and two arms that assemble made-to-order change dispensers alongside their human colleagues in a factory employing 370. Glory is in the vanguard as Japanese firms ramp up spending on robotics and automation, responding at last to premier Shinzo Abe's efforts to stimulate the economy and end two decades of stagnation and deflation.

Time to stare at a live feed of this underwater garden

Time to stare at a live feed of this underwater gardenHolidays can be exhausting, but it's nothing an underwater garden can't solve. This is Nemo's Garden, an underwater greenhouse anchored off Italy's Ligurian coast, recently detailed in The Washington Post. Stationed 20 feet underwater, Nemo's garden is able to take advantage of high humidity, even temperatures and exceptionally high CO2 concentrations to grow herbs and fruits significantly faster than you could on land. Luckily for us, they've also set up a public livestream, in case you'd like to spend a few minutes losing yourself in the paradise of aquatic agriculture.

Nearly all major subreddits are back online following Reddit protests

Nearly all major subreddits are back online following Reddit protestsJust a day after a massive revolt tore down parts of Reddit, the site now appears to be mostly back to normal. Most all major subreddits are back online after volunteer moderators (who run subreddits without direct control from the company) began setting hundreds of popular subreddits to private mode on Thursday and Friday, shutting out nearly all visitors. The protests accomplished its goal — the uprising at Reddit gained international media attention, including articles from The New York Times, The Guardian, Time, and the BBC — and it appears moderators decided there was little benefit in continuing to keep their subreddits offline.

Draft accords of sanctions relief at Iran nuke talks in hand

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, centre, Head of the Iranian Atomic Energy Organization Ali Akbar Salehi, left, and Hossein Fereydoon, brother and close aide to President Hassan Rouhani, meet with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry in Vienna, Austria, Friday July 3, 2015. Iran has committed to implementing the IAEA's "additional protocol" for inspections and monitoring as part of an accord, but the rules don't guarantee international monitors can enter any facility including sensitive military sites, so making it difficult to investigate allegations of secret work on nuclear weapons. (Carlos Barria/Pool via AP)VIENNA (AP) — World powers and Iran have drawn up a draft document on the pace and timing of sanctions relief for the Islamic republic in exchange for curbs on Iran's nuclear program, advancing on one of the most contentious issues at their negotiations, diplomats told The Associated Press on Saturday.
